Why Sri Rides

This wraps up Dmitry Gudkov’s series of bike-share-themed “Why I Ride” profiles on Streetsblog. Thanks Dmitry! From here on out, it’s just random chance if the subject of a “Why I Ride” post is smiling next to a Citi Bike.

Sri is a programmer. He lives in New Jersey and takes the train to Penn Station. He has been using Citi Bike to get between Penn Station and his job near Grand Central Terminal. “I ride a bike at home; sometimes I’ll ride to the train station and leave the bike there. I’m still trying Citi Bike out – this will be my fourth ride. So far I like it very much. Riding in NYC can be a little daunting but I think I will get used to it. Hopefully we will have more bike lanes or bike only streets in the future.”
